Longs Peak Big City Mountaineers - Summit For Someone

  • Rocky Mountain National Park (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Every year, Summit for Someone climbers join together with Backpacker Magazine to ascend some of the world’s most breathtaking mountains to improve the lives of under-served youth. The vital funding that is raised through Summit for Someone makes it possible for Big City Mountaineers to deliver transformational wilderness mentoring expeditions to urban youth across the country in need of positive adult guidance in challenging and restorative environments. Climb Longs Peak with Backpacker Magazine! At 14,259 feet, Longs Peak presents visitors with challenging hiking, spectacular climbing, and stunning views. Whether you would like to hike The Keyhole Route or The North Face Route, standing on the summit of Longs is the experience of a lifetime! This 3-day climb will allow not only for some time to acclimatize, but also an overnight in a picturesque boulder field before your summit attempt. As the sole concessionaire for technical guiding in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado Mountain School guides are able to carry technical climbing equipment that offers clients a layer of safety and experience.

Backpacker Magazine will host an after party at their headquarters in Boulder, Colorado to thank all the participants and sponsors, and give you a chance to network with outdoor industry companies in the area. Don’t miss it!

Clear Creek Clean-up

The 4th Annual Clear Creek Clean-Up hosted by Downstream Adventures is expanding this year. In the past, the raft guides of Clear Creek have taken advantage of early season low water levels to pick up their "office". This year, the local businesses that have supported the clean-up in the past with food and libations are putting boots on the ground to help remove the trash that gets washed into the creek every year. A free Kokopelli Castaway packraft is being given away at the clean-up!
